Nicki Minaj means business. Young Money’s First Lady suits up for the cover of Italian men’s magazine L’Uomo Vogue (via MTV News).
In the black-and-white shots, taken by famed photographer/director Francesco Carrozzini (Beyoncé’s “Jealous”), Nicki dons a black bob and a masculine wardrobe. She loosens up her tie and gives us a peak at what’s underneath her dress shirt in one provocative pic.
Nicki will host and perform at the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards in Glasgow, Scotland on November 9 before releasing her album The PinkPrint on November 24.
In other Nicki news, “Anaconda” has become her longest solo No. 1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart after six weeks.
